LIVE in Chicago

Chicago BIMStorm from KimonOnuma on Vimeo.

On January 27, 2011, 100 people gathered online and at HOK's office in Chicago for 90 minutes to watch and participate in a BIMStorm. This is the result.

January 27th Evening - $14 Billion in 90 Minutes

Mash up of all the submitted projects. This still needs some work, but all the pieces are in place.

Live reports of cost and other data of the projects above.

January 27th Middle of Day...

Nice site in Grant Park with a great view. Can we do this? Please provide input to this BIMStorm.

Grant Park in Chicago will be the "landing" area for new projects during the presentation

I think there will be some controversy on the site selection....

How you can participate in this BIMStorm

If you would just like to watch the presentation please sign up below. If you want to interact with the participants there are many easy ways to get started. Level 1 is the easiest.

Getting Real with BIM, GIS and Facility Management: The Huge Opportunity for 21st Century Architects, Engineers, Contractors & Owners

Cloud computing through the internet with interconnected applications allow all levels of users to collaborate with open standards based information in unprecedented ways. Real time interaction on the Internet is possible today through BIMStorms. Sustainability goals of the 2030 challenge + Executive Order 13514 can be addressed with Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the cloud. Kimon Onuma, a leader in the BIM world and creator of BIMStorms, will demonstrate how you can maximize the value of the “I” of BIM.

With everything connected -- the world connected to the city, the city to the site, the site to the building and the building to the contents of the building -- the complexity creates immense challenges. Facility management throughout the entire life-cycle from early planning to sustainment is critical to support high performance buildings. Informed design decisions with access to real-time performance and energy data become clear with connected facility information at local and regional levels. Owners using these processes for design and integrated project delivery are recognizing the benefits of low carbon collaboration that leverages knowledge and expertise with unified models. The session is geared for all levels of owners, operators, architects and planners, and illustrates how to make facility information more connected and relevant today.
